Tuesday Night Football preview: Western Sydney Wanderers v Central Coast Mariners
Central Coast Mariners will look to gather momentum with successive A-League wins, travelling to Parramatta to face Western Sydney Wanderers at Bankwest Stadium on Tuesday night.
The Mariners clinched a typically dramatic win over Adelaide United earlier in Matchweek 15, overcoming a one-goal deficit to win 2-1 and strengthen their position on top of the A-League table.
Alen Stajcic's side have come under pressure of late after Adelaide and Melbourne City strung together respective six-game winning streaks heading into the Matchweek, but the Mariners beat the Reds and City lost to Western United to give the league-leaders some relief ahead of the Wanderers clash.
Western Sydney are winless in two after a heavy defeat to City preceded a 1-1 draw with Brisbane Roar on Saturday, April 3. Carl Robinson's side sit in fifth on the table leading into their meeting with the Mariners, and will need to register three points to keep pace with the top four sides.
The Wanderers and Mariners met in Matchweek 4, when the Red and Black clinched a 1-0 win on the road. The Wanderers can jump to within three points of Central Coast by making a return to winning ways on Tuesday night.
